Filter bags fail if any of the primary functions of the bag requirements yield unsatisfactory performances:

Filterability, Cleanability, Durability

​​Baghouses contain only two basic performance measurements: pressure differential and stack opacity. These instruments report only the symptoms of faulty performance – they do not determine the causes.

Reacting to these symptoms without knowing the cause can further aggravate the problem and even render the bags incapable of satisfactory performance.

E.C.C. Laboratories incorporates state of the art testing equipment and unparalleled personnel expertise for complete testing and evaluation of filter bags, addressing all causes for failure.

Thorough reports generated from bag testing include microscopic photography, supporting data, and chemical analysis as appropriate to the cause of failure. Conclusions and appropriate operator corrective actions are based on scientific facts.
